100-Year-Old’s U.S. Citizenship Is Bad for O’Malley

U.S. citizenship

Germantown resident Donatila Leticia Munoz Orantes came to live in the U.S. in the eighties, but because she only speaks Spanish she had to wait a long time for U.S. citizenship. She was finally naturalized on June 26, her 100th birthday. And with that, Gov. Martin O’Malley’s chances of becoming president in 2016 just shrunk slightly. I wonder if he felt a disturbance in the force.

Munoz Orantes said — through her daughter who interpreted — that out of all the benefits of citizenship she is most excited to exercise her right to vote. It’s a right she plans to use in 2016 to vote for “that Clinton woman.” So whoever is keeping the tally, chalk up one more for Hillary Clinton taking Maryland in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.
